My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Sea Breeze  #1)

Abbi Glines

First - The Blurb:

Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationships never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.

And now the Swoon:

I blushed, and he leaned down to whisper in my ear. "If you keep looking at me like that, I'm going to have a harder time staying focused on this movie than I am already."

I frowned. "Why're you having a hard time?"

He grinned wickedly and set his popcorn down before taking my hands. "Because I'm with a beautiful girl who completely fascinates me, and we're in a dark room all alone, and all I want to do is sit  and stare at her, but I know if I do, I won't be able to keep myself from kissing her very perfect, very tempting lips."
I swallowed hard, and my heart pounded in my chest. Suddenly the dark around us seemed to close in, and a force neither of us seemed to be able to control kept our eyes locked on each other's. Jax's hand slipped out of mine and slid behind my neck, and he leaned in. The lips of the only boy I would ever love touched mine, and I forgot where we were and everything else around us.
